How do I keep a contact's birthday from appearing on my calendar?

Every time I edit something on a contact, his birthday will appear on my 
calendar (even if I already have that person's birthday on my calendar).  So 
I am ending up with duplicates of the birthdays.  I am using Outlook 2003 on

Don't put the birthday in the birthday field or delete all the birthdays 
from the calendar and let them be recreated. If the link is broken between 
the birthday and the contact it will create a new birthday event the next 
time its edited.

Migrating Lotus Domino contacts to Exchange 2003
Using the Lotus to Exchange migration tool worked as needed for moving user information and mail from the old Lotus machine to the new SBS2003 Exchange server. The tool does not do anything with the public contacts, however. What is the best method of migrating the contacts on the Lotus Domino server? I am not too familiar with Domino but I expect there is a way to export the database into a file, but how would I import that same file into Exchange?

Outlook keeps prompting for logon..
User is on Outlook 2k3, latest service packs, updates, etc. Mailbox lives on Exchange 2007 (SP1). Everytime the user starts Outlook they're prompted to logon. I've disabled the logon prompt at startup option (and enabled it and then disabled it again), but it's still happening. I've tried it with cached mode on and cached mode off. I've tried it with offline mode enabled and disabled. I've tried deleting his profile and recreating it. I've tried switching to an RPC/HTTPS connection. Finally, i completely uninstalled Outlook 2k3 and installed Outlook 2k7. Not...

Confirmation of receipt keeps trying to send and fails
Help! I received an email message that requested a confirmation that it had been received. I told it to send confirmation, but it failed when attemtping to send it and produced an error.

Having numbers automatically appear bold
Hi all, Had such great advise last time, thought I'd try again. I have a large range of cells where I will be inputing sales figures i the form of currency revenue. The range is about G-I and 1-400. Th sales data will be a comparisson of YTD 2001 - 2004 revenue results. What I hope to do is have any figure that is above $30,000 appea automatically in bold so as to stand out as a good client.

Add contacts to Global
I am a parent trying to get our elementary school up to date. I want to add all the students in the school's CONTACTS (address, phone, email address, etc). They do use Exchange as I saw GLOBAL as an option at one of the teacher's pc. The principal would like me to do this. They outsource their computer technical work, so I am thinking I would need administrative access to add contacts to the global contacts, correct?

Customizing the contacts order in the Address Book

Keep Lines Together; Keep with Next
I'm working in Vista. When I select lines and click on "Keep Lines Together," the lines do not stay together. They stay together if I also click "Keep with Next," but I'm working on a booklet in which the pages are 1/4 of a letter-sized page, and a lot of space (4 lines) is left at the bottom and wasted if I also click "Keep with Next." Why won't "Keep Lines Together" keep the lines together? The project is a small, bound country club booklet, with names, addresses, phones, etc. Each entry might be 2, 3, or 4 lines. Any h...

Access and Outlook Calendar
I've searched thru this forum and thru the Outlook forum and can't find exactly the issue I need to resolve. I have developed a calendar in AC2003.

Modify COntact Form in 2003
I read in the knowledge base that the 2003 contact form layout is from 2002, not 2003. Is there any way to modify the 2003 version of the form? Thanks. The Outlook 2003 contact form can be customized in the exact same way as in any other version of Outlook. The only thing missing when you go into design mode is the new picture control in the contact form. That you manipulate with the ContactItem.AddPicture, .RemovePicture and ..HasPicture properties. The picture is stored as an attachment in the ContactItem. -- Ken Slovak [MVP - Outlook] Author: Absolute Begin...

In a jam. I send contact info to work but they don't get what I se
Hi everyone, I'm in a real jam here & could use some help. I have various Outlook 2007 contacts that I need to send back to my workplace. These contacts have information entered in the "Notes" section. When I attach the contacts in an email no notes are included with any of the contacts. Some Googling led me to go into each contact, then Save As > Export to vCard file, where I saved them all on my Desktop. I thought I was home free because opening a couple vCard files I noticed the "Notes" had been included. However, after opening more vCards I ...
